What comes to mind when we think of the Old West? Often, our conceptions are accompanied by as much mythology and mystique as fact or truth. What are the differences in how the Canadian and American Wests are perceived? Did they develop differently or are they just perceived differently? How do our conceptions influence our perceptions? A companion volume to One West, Two Myths: A Comparative Reader, One West, Two Myths II: Essays on Comparison presents scholarly views on the comparison of the Canadian and American Wests and the various methodologies involved. Contributors include literature specialists, scholars of popular culture, art historians, and political, social, and intellectual historians, demonstrating the interdisciplinary nature of this area of study. With Contributions By: J.M.S. Careless Sarah Carter Brian W. Dippie R. Douglas Francis C.L. Higham William H. Katerberg Lee Clark Mitchell Roger L. Nichols Robert Thacker Fredrick Jackson Turner Aritha van Herk David L. Williams
